David Pinto, over at Baseball Musings, put together a nice piece over the weekend about how the NL East race has shaped up this year.
I know that we all know this from having followed along all season, but it's interesting to look at in summary - particularly the chart.
After looking at this chart, I'm even more pessimistic about the Nationals chances to "maintain" what they did in the first half. The reality of it is that they just had a great June.
The trend the Marlins are showing is not very encouraging.
